The band formed in May 2008 and quickly recorded their debut album “Dinner for One” which was self-recorded, self-mastered and also produced by the band at a zero-budget. It was released in Juli 2008 and would later become one of the most downloaded albums ever on Jamendo with around 20,000 downloads worldwide (as of May 2011). The band’s self-titled style is powerful acoustic rock.
In January 2009, Amity in Fame released its first low budget music video to the song “Dinner for One” which received around 70,000 views on YouTube in the first two years and also got regular airplay on one of Middle Europe's biggest music channels, GOTV. Less than a year after the band’s first rehearsal, they had already appeared on numerous European radio stations, music blogs and compilation albums. In less than a year after the foundation, Amity in Fame achieved rank five in Middle-Europe's biggest band contest, the International Live Award (with over 1,000 bands from eight nations) and the band played in front of over 5,000 people. The debut album "Dinner for One" is one of the most successful CC-albums to date and it was also picked by Rammstein to be aired regularly via the PA before the band's concerts.
In 2010, the band concentrated on further developing the style of powerful acoustic rock and on reaching a new level in composition and artistic conception. The second studio album, Through, was written and recorded and finally got released on May 6, 2011. According to the band, the new album represents a new level of powerful acoustic rock. With this album, Amity in Fame wants to lure its listeners into a new world of unique sound and pitoresque fantasies. The new album already has been praised by reviewers from the progressive, alternative and metal genre and it is well received by fans. Currently, the band is promoting the new album and working on the music video to the song “The Kraken” from the new album. Concerts are planned in Middle Europe for 2012 and in North America for 2013.
